Heidi has a few tickets left for the Gala …. we’re getting down to the wire!
If you need some tickets, get in touch with her directly (heidiATwhnpa.org) or drop a comment form to the WHNPA web site ASAP and we’ll do the best we can to accommodate your request.
To get you in the mood to party, here are last year’s photos… http://www.whnpa.org/events/
The night is shaping up to be spectacular, highlighting Lifetime Achievement Recipient Ron Edmonds, Video gurus Dai Baker and Chris Shlemon from ITN, Political and National contest winner Brooks Kraft, Photographer of the Year freelancer Patrick Smith, and the 2013 Student Scholarship winner, Meg Roussos, who just graduated from Ohio University.
I do have a few seats left so if you or someone you know still wants to come email me and I will get you the credit card link for ticket payment. But let me know quickly!
Thank you to all who have supported your association through volunteering.
HELP needed urgently for goodie bag staging and assembly. This Friday afternoon at 4:30 p.m, we will organize and prepare our gift bags for distribution at the gala. Many hands and strong bodies are needed!!! We have hundreds of boxes to unload and unpack. Your association thrives on its volunteers.
You can also purchase your raffle tickets for the NIKON D800 camera body at this time, too! No standing in line at the gala. Remember, each $10 chance goes to support the WHNPA scholarship! Not coming to the gala and still want a chance to win? Reach out to one of you colleagues who is coming and have them buy the tickets for you!
Tickets can be picked up at the Ritz Carlton after noon on Friday or by letting me know of another arrangement that works better for you. Please make every effort to pickup your tickets ahead of Saturday night. The hotel has asked that we limit “will call” as it creates a bit too much congestion and confusion for those arriving.
Your tickets will look a bit different this year, but rest assured, they are numbered and you’ll need them on your person in order to win a pair of United Airline tickets!!!!
See you soon!

Hi WHNPA team,
I’d like to invite you to get inspired by the powerful and compelling stories created by my first “Advanced Video Storytelling” team at University of Maryland on Wednesday, May 8th at 7pm in Eaton Theater. The students have been producing natural sound packages on a common theme, and creating the first HD productions to come out of Merrill College. You met Evan, Christine, Ana, Terrence, Jessie, Julia, Catherine and Louie at the WHNPA judging in February and at our meeting on campus in December.
